But it is :-). FreeBSD carries a patched 2.3.5 pppd that was maintained by
Peter Wemm (I think he works for Yahoo now, I emailed him). 

Can you please submit the NetBSD patches to the author? The latest release
doesn't support FreeBSD or NetBSD and updating the FreeBSD patches is
non-trivial. This could be maintained in the ports tree and would leave the
door open to suggest a different pppd (or an updated one) in the base FreeBSD
